Integration Overview: Workday Report-as-a-Service (RaaS)

Connecting to Workday

Compa Index connects with Workday seamlessly via Report-as-a-Service (RaaS). This approach is advantageous compared to an API integration because it takes far less time and effort to complete. Our data science engine structures offer data to provide powerful internal reporting and to connect you to real-time, offers-based market data.


This document contains details on resources required to connect to Compa via Workday RaaS and the scope of data shared.


Workday connects with Compa using Report-as-a-Service (RaaS). Unlike an API integration, the RaaS connection can be completed quickly with limited resource requirements from your team.


Compa partners with Intecrowd, an award-winning Workday Services Partner, and your Workday Admin to configure your RaaS connection. The process consists of building reports with the required fields and scheduling automatic delivery to Compa. Once the Workday RaaS and Compa are connected, we'll conduct tests to ensure data is flowing as expected. Workday RaaS development typically takes ~6 weeks to complete.


Once Workday is connected, your compensation team will receive a questionnaire regarding your company info, compensation programs, and career architecture. We recommend setting aside 20-30 minutes to complete.


Compa’s Customer Success team will configure your offer data from Workday in combination with questionnaire responses and schedule time with you to review for accuracy.


RaaS scope of data

The following table summarizes the information required for Compa Index, which includes details about each company's offers since January 1, 2022.

Data Element Notes
Date Date the offer was made
Status The status of the offer; for instance whether the offer was accepted or rejected
Job Which job the candidate who received the offer was applying for
Pay Element Details
  • The type of each pay element, for example base salary sign-on bonus, new hire grant, etc.

    • For pay elements denominated in currency, Compa needs to know both the nominal value and the currency

    • For stock-based pay elements, Compa can understand value from either the number of units multiplied by the value per unit or Compa can obtain the currency-denominated value. This approach will depend on how your organization has configured Workday.

Pay Element Timing
  • The timing of each pay element

    • Whether the pay element is paid annually, monthly, quarterly, hourly, etc.

    • Whether the pay element is subject to a vesting; and, if so, what the vesting schedule is.

    • Whether the pay element is granted once (as in a signing bonus) or whether the pay element is granted regularly (as in an annual bonus)

Company
  • The company the candidate was working for at the time of the offer.

    • Compa requires only the name of the company. The name does not need to be a structured representation of a company. Misspelled, inaccurate, and/or duplicate names are well-handled by Compa - the report does not need to attempt to correct or structure the information.

    • Company names are used to create a report that shows insights such as win-rate, offer amount, frequency, etc. by company. This information is only visible by Compa users at your company - it does not contribute to the market dataset.

Current and Historical Job Details

Compa needs to understand the following details about each of your company’s current and historical jobs, including any jobs that have offers made since January 1, 2022:

  • The job title
  • The job description
  • The job family the job belongs to.
  • The job level the job belongs to.
    • If a job may have multiple levels, Compa needs to understand what job level applies to each offer.

  • The location where the work is performed.

    • Used to determine the appropriate geographic labor market for the offer; for instance, the San Francisco Bay Area or New York City Metro. Which location to use will depend on your company policy; for instance, a fully remote company might use the location of a candidate, a regional hub, etc., while a fully in-person company might use the location of a specific office. Generally, the location where the work is performed should be used.

  • The source of the application.
    • Used to delineate internal transfers from external hires.

 

Multiple reports may be needed. If some of this information lives outside of Workday, Compa can support a one-time integration of rogue data sources. If multiple reports are created, the reports should include identifiers for objects like offers, jobs, locations, etc. so that Compa can connect data from multiple reports.
